Book Description

Travel with Confidence: A Roadmap to Build Your Travel Spirit (previously published as the Fear-Crushing Travel Guide) helps you overcome travel fears and anxieties with confidence and practical action.

Travel does not discriminate; we can all travel. It is not reserved for a special few. This book makes travel accessible to you.

It helps you eliminate your travel fears of leaving home, jobs, children and/or pets behind, going through the motions of air travel, choosing the right travel companions or traveling solo, fears of flying, and traveling on a tight budget and making sure everything is taken care of in your absence at home.

The author is humbled for the stellar review from Rick Seaney, CEO of FareCompare:

“Great For Home Bodies & Workaholics Alike

As a weekly air travel columnist for ABCNews.com and USA Today, I am no stranger to travel fears (I have a “white knuckle” flyer of a brother and a “won’t board a prop plane” wife), I found Ms. Brock’s “Travel with Confidence” an excellent and snappy read for anyone with even a twinge of anxiety about moving out of their current travel comfort zone.

She leaves no stone unturned as she walks us through the steps to becoming a savvy world traveler without requiring decades of seasoning. Her common sense steps help both home bodies and workaholics alike remove all the excuses and road blocks thrown up between them and a bucket-list full of travel adventures.

Travel with Confidence first addresses issue of culture shock, personal safety and fear of flying, then it helps confident travelers take their travels to another level by saving them time and money and showing them tools to travel more efficiently.

Thanks to this book, all travelers can learn how to relieve anxieties with meticulous pre-planning: the author provides how-to’s that are practical and easy to follow. I like how she covers the basics on getting a house-sitter, what to do with pets, while reminding you not to mention travel plans on social media and the importance of a low-key departure. And don’t miss the tips on budget travel that won’t make you feel deprived, and see how you can enjoy the ultimate in luxury without paying more than you have to.”

My wife and I love traveling, even if we don't do it often, we do it well when we do it. We don't have a fear of traveling but our parents - that's a different story, so I wanted to help them overcome their resistance to going place further than the beach or the mountains, and this book is phenomenal in covering all the crazy fears and anxieties people have around travel. Most of it is made up in your mind. The author does a great job of really getting to the root cause of all those fears, and then helps you overcome them. The travel tips are golden. We are going to be using some of those ourselves. This is a book on the psychology of travel interwoven with the travel stories of the author herself. Plus a great sense of humor. Awesome read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It! April 10, 2012
By Andrew
Format:Kindle Edition
I love that Farnoosh has taken the time to walk us though almost every detail of the travel experience. Most of our travel fears and stress come from a lack of control, either real or perceived, and this guide 1) gives you information to be prepared, and 2) gives you a change in perspective to leave you feeling a bit more relaxed and focused. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a stay-at-home mom on a very small budget--but with a very big dream of international travel-I was curious to see what The Fear-Crushing Guide to Travel would say about traveling on a budget. The tips outlined in Chapter 7 helped me realize that world travel is well within my reach! The Fear-Crushing Guide to Travel showed me that I can open my mind and my world without having to empty my wallet.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more excuses for your travel dreams! April 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Fear Crushing Travel Guide left me yearning to travel more-and I was in the midst of traveling when I got this book! The interviews & tips covered all psychological issues I've ever encountered from talking to people about traveling more. In addition, it neatly covers each life stage and the people we want to take with us (or how to leave them behind tactfully.)

The stories included evoke a strong "saudades" (Portuguese), reminding to drink deeply of foreign cultures while we are still capable. The author expertly weaves her own experiences with other short & long term travelers' and does her best to uproot any objections you might be clinging to with her masterfully designed book. "

5.0 out of 5 stars A real resource for practical advice April 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Leaving the country for the first time and traveling alone through India, Vietnam, and Nepal was both terrifying and daunting. With so many questions and so many fears, I spent months researching and looking for inspiration and travel advice to reassure myself that I wasn't absolutely crazy. In one fell swoop, the Fear Crushing Travel Guide pulls together all the advice (and more!) that I spent months looking for, the same advice that helped me make one of the most important decisions of my life.

If you're afraid to travel or if you're uncertain what to expect, this guide will alleviate your fears and address your doubts. From overcoming air travel anxiety and dealing with culture shock, to staying safe abroad and traveling on a budget, this guide is packed with so much information that it's worth reading twice.
